It was here that Nelson Mandela, was incarcerated for 18 of the 27 years that he spent as a political prisoner of the Apartheid regime. On this tour you will see the prison itself and Mandela’s cell. In the 2 ½ hours that you spend on the island, your Robben Island guide will bring those years to life and explain to you how the legacy of Robben Island has been one of the most important building blocks of the new ‘Rainbow Nation’.

Lying at the south-western tip of Africa, the Cape Peninsula National Park encompasses the incredibly scenic Peninsula mountain chain stretching from Signal Hill in the north to Cape Point in the south – a distance of approximately 60 km. The narrow finger of land with its many beautiful valleys, bays and beaches is bound by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean in the west and the warmer waters of False Bay in the east.

In the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve are replicas of two historic crosses, the first erected in 1488 by Bartholomew Diaz, the first European to reach the Cape. He opened the way for Vasco da Gama, who found the route to India around Africa in 1497 and erected his cross within sight of the first.
